  • The most important result of competition is the development of life-long values and skills.
  • The athletic program is an integral part of the high school experience.

  • In the multi-sport athlete.
  • Athletic programs are most beneficial when they are competitive.
  • Winning is an attitude resulting from optimum preparation, concentrated effort and a deep commitment to excel.
  • Well-designed athletic programs promote community and school pride.
  • Open communication and mutual respect among coaches, parents, and athletes provide the foundation of a successful athletic program.
  • Morale, satisfaction, and performance are enhanced when athletes work together as a team.
